A user-friendly resource that examines the intricacies of parent-child relationships in contemporary society
For decades, Parent-Child Relations: An Introduction to Parenting has prepared countless teachers and practitioners by using family systems and systemic family development theory as frameworks to explore the evolution of the family, the stages of family system development, and the challenges faced by all types of families. Readers will discover a broad range of issues encountered across the lifespan to help them prepare for their roles as professionals working with families or as parents themselves.

Filled with relevant new topics, two new chapters, and new cultural snapshots, the 10th Edition has been extensively updated while retaining the essential developmental approach and comprehensive coverage.
